Figure 5: Positive Partnership Score components by geographic category. This graph depicts the proportion of individuals in each geographic category that achieve the care markers included in the Positive Partnership Score. A number of CD4 count and viral load tests are measured in the first year after ART start. Recommended ART is based on the contemporary International AIDS Society Guidelines at the time of ART initiation. Virologic suppression was defined as 2 consecutive viral load measurements of <50 copies/mL measured at least 30 days apart within 6 months of starting ART. Data on starting recommended ART are not presented for one geographic category due to small cell sizes and privacy regulations.
